Digital Communications Policy

After over a yearlong discussions with stakeholders, in May 2018 the department of telecommunications (DoT) released its draft National Digital Communication Policy (NDCP). Even while it was in the process of seeking cabinet nod, on June 1, 2018, DoT also prepared an actionable plan for its implementation. While processing the approval, cabinet secretariat raised several queries on the cabinet note prepared by the DoT, which were promptly responded. Finally, on September 26, 2018, the cabinet approved the policy.
